just arrived back, and have to say we had a brilliant time, the hotel was clean but a bit dated, bedding changed once a week,and clean towels every day, beds i found to be comfy, and big enough for a tall person hubby 6ft 2 and still no feet hanging out the bottom lol, balcony and bathrooms very small, you cannot use the toilet or get into the bath without closing the door first, which made it like a steam room, free air conditioning, but will only work once the patio doors are closed to, so no good if you are sat on balcony and your other half is having a sleep, as you cannot get back in as doors lock and can only be opend from the inside, (tip the air con works on door by a ...
magnet conection, take a very small magnet with you, this solves the getting locked on balcony dilema while hubby sleeps with air con on in room lol, wink wink , then door open with air con working. we stayed B&B which i thought food was good, when people say basic breakfast same choise every day what do they ecxpect a three course steak meal for breakfast, there was a full englich brakfast ie bacon, sausuage fried, boiled, scrambeld, eggs. tomatoes, mushroom,beans cerials, toast jams, marmalades, cold meats cheese yogurts, salad, and more, we had one evening meal in hoterl which was ok, but we prefared to eat in other places, so cannot really comment on the main meals, our firm fav was the red indian resaurent just round the corner from hotel, it is american indian themed , and very clean and pleasant staff, and the potions are huge much better value for money then any others we tried, a three course meal with a choise of 6 starters, main meals, and deserts for 10 euros, do check out were you eat some offer 3 course meals and they are terrible with very little food, the pool at hotel is large and spotless and clean and depth starts at 3m then rises to 8m with walk down steps with a hand rail which is great if you are bad walking like myself, and cannot get into pool via those steep metal steps stuck in a corner, staff are pleasant and always ready to help, the man on night reception he comes on round 5 and stays on all night long, is english speaking and we found him very helpfull and a lovely man, very patiant even though he must be tired the hours he puts in, take enough toiletries and sunscreens to last your holidays, as three times the price over there, i would say prices are same as home for drinks, but better value food at home, we stayed at the front of hotel near to macdonald, but that never botherd us as we had a lovely veiw of the street and see all that was going on, the magic water starts at 9 till 10 every night,so unless you are out at this time can be a pain, gets quiet noisy with the same themed music every night, the square bar oppasite is the same, elvis and tom jones screaming out every night, with some bad singers lol, and that goes on untill about 2 in the morning, but close doors and dims the sounds, though not completley, i would go back to this hotel. but overall we found cyprus the most exspensive place we have been too, and you mush do the open top bus tour ,great 3 hours and good value.
